If you can believe it, this Wednesday is the final market of the 2011 Peterborough Downtown Farmers' Market Season. It has been my absolute delight to be the manager of this fabulous market this season. It truly is a wonderful place.
On Wednesday Oct. 5th, Guest Chef Will Wood-Gates from 38 degrees will be on-site cooking up Crosswind Farms goat meat, Waymac Farms mushrooms and other delectable seasonal produce from our wonderful vendors. Come on down to try out a sample!
We are so lucky to have so many farmers', bakers, roasters, crafters', and cooks work incredibly hard to bring the amazing products to the downtown core every week.
Be sure to join us between 8:30-2pm on Wednesday Oct. 5th. Stock up on your favourite products, enjoy the atmosphere, and be sure to thank the vendors for all their hard-work. I know that I will greatly miss this place over the winter, but alas, perhaps we all need a little time to recoup and hibernate!
Thanks to all of our fabulous and loyal market-goers. We couldn't be here without you!
